Arturo Fuente King B Short Cigar Review

January 29, 2013 · Posted in Cigar Review, Short Cigar Review 

I received this cigar from Thompson Cigar; all reviews are my own.

Wrapper: Ecuadorian Sun Grown Rosado   |   Binder: Dominican   |   Filler: Dominican   |   Box of 18: $118.23; Six Pack: $39.41  |   Torpedo   |   6″ x 55

0/3: I have had this cigar sitting in my humidor for about a year. Oily and slightly rough to the touch, the wrapper is marred by a couple of minor veins. These cigars come wrapped in a cedar sleeve with a black cloth band at the foot. It’s a beautiful cigar to look at and I’m hoping that the flavors are as good as the looks.

1/3: Spice, light cedar, nuts and some other nice flavors. The burn gets a little ragged but is quickly corrected. Medium bodied.

2/3: Sweetness starts coming through during this third. Cedar and nuts are still major factors.

3/3: Chocolate comes along during the final third. The flavors seem a bit washed out but, underneath that, there’s a decent amount of flavor variety.

4/3: Medium bodied with a good draw and a decent burn; this cigar wasn’t as good as I had hoped. It had breadth of flavor but those flavors were average. Decent cigar.

3 out of 5 points – Good cigar

    I was not a huge fan of this one. I think I gave it a 3/5 as well, though in my book that’s not really good enough for another buy.
